Company is coming and you want to offer up a different but tasty hors d’oeuvres. This will make about 18 so judge accordingly as to amounts required.
- 1/3 cup pepper Boursin cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup finely chopped basil
- 18 very thin slices of Genoa salami
- 18 grape tomatoes
- 18 long, fresh chives
Stir the cheese and basil together until well blended.
Put 1/2 tsp. of the cheese in the center of the salami. Press a tomato, with the stem down, into the cheese and wrap the salami around it. Put the bundle on its side while you wrap the long chive, CAREFULLY, around and tie it off. Make sure you leave the tomato exposed.
If you are making this ahead of time, simply cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator. To get ready to serve, on the counter and leave until it reaches room temperature -should be about 15 – 20 minutes.
No one will believe their eyes when you pass the plate and see the pretty flowers you prepared.
